. to that extent they need to step up the game a little bit. i think that is the biggest takeaway. david: steve jobs, i know it is unfair to compare him to steve jobs but hey, you have to compare him with his predecessor. steve jobs was always a leader. his products were always leading the market. wasn't so much what was in it. everybody had access to the stuff and chips and everything in it. it was the product he brought forth that was so different that led the market. a lot of people see tim cook as a follower, not a leader. is that a fair or unfair comparison? >> i think that's, i think that could be a fair comparison. certainly each investor has to make their own opinion. i do think it is too early to seal the tim cook legacy based on one quarter miss and certainly a little bit over a year after his death. you know i think innovation can still come back with this company. 47, 48 million units of iphones sales may be a couple million lighter than consensus and not in that range but certainly not a disasterous number by any means. it is still a very popular product. sandra: you're certainly t

and his moral leadership on this. melissa: steve, are you that gracious? >> no, i wouldn't be that gracious. i give him a "d" -- melissa: oh, oh, a "d"! >> a generous "d," and i see what sigh san is saying in that i think the strength was he was more an ideolog, a strength, but he has to answer for the dramatically escalating debt that took place while he was treasury secretary. the fact that the president didn't take it very seriously, and then his comment to paul ryan i thought was a telling one saying to paul ryan we don't have a definitive solution to the problem, but we don't like yours. you got to have solutions if you're the secretary of treasury. melissa: tim, what do you think? can you cut it in the middle. we have an a and a d, what do you give him? >> actually, i feel right in the best place. i give him a c-plus, better than average, better than average. he had a tough job over the last four years, and i'm not sure anybody could have scored an "an," even though my colleagues think so. at the start, he didn't start well or end well. the stimulus package at the b

'm president. >> i think steve forgot -- this is an inaugural address. >> it did not sound like it. >> if we sit hereafter the state of the union, and president did not discuss the debt, i will say you are right, but an inaugural address is about something else, it is not about deficits, it is about his lofty goals. >> he was in your face, this is what i'm going to do, this is what i'm going to push through, and deal with it, that was the at computer. >> that is not it -- was the attitude. >> that is not it, he never said he doesn't know there will be reforming a involved. he said the opposite, you will hear that. neil: hope springs eternal. only reason why i put that in some context, kiddingly, but to make the bigger point is, this just, disconnect to your point about a washington that is just saying one thing, doing another, liverring in a bubble. -- living in a bubble. and it is to the point now where it is all for show. a great show, i know many guys who were watching beyonce, didn't care if she got the words right or accurate. so, is that a sign of the times right now? in washington the
. they had breaks through products that weren't cheap. steve jobs introduced them all. they were very expensive products. now they seem to compete on price, trying to get in there with cheaper phone or ipad that still was priced wrong or appeared to be priced wrong. is that a mistake strategically for apple to be trying rather than coming out out with break through products with a premium on price, trying to compete with the price level at the bottom? >> yeah, there are two components to that question. the question of one whether there is breakthrough product that can make a difference anymore. part of that is the iphone has become so massively successful it is hard to move the needle, if you're not driving higher iphone units. the other part is, you know, they haven't really introduced a cheap iphone the cheapest iphone on wholesale basis about 450 bucks that is still pretty expensive for a phone. on the ipad sideÑ reality there was a market for 7 inch phones or 7 inch tablets or 8 inch tablets and if they didn't go there they would lose out on the market segment. so that was a a mo
